fh = figure('Menu','none','ToolBar','none');
ah = axes('Units','Normalize','Position',[0 0 1 1])
ADDENDUM
If you're using axis square you'll need to make sure the figure position is also square. Here's a demo following the block above:
plot(rand(1000,1),rand(1000,1),'ko')
axis(ah, 'square')
fh.Position(3) = fh.Position(4); %set width equal to height

It eliminates all borders except for the figure window itself. I've added some data to the axes to show that.
If you're using axis square see the addendum in my answer.

When you say "figure" do you mean the figure object (the window on the screen) or the axes contained in the figure? I've seen people use that word in both meanings.
If you want to maximize the figure object (the window on the screen) and you're using release R2018a or later, use the WindowState property of the figure object.
If you want to make the axes span the entirety of the figure window, do as Adam Danz suggested.
If you want the axes to span the entirety of a maximized figure object, combine Adam's suggestion and mine. Maximize the figure then make the axes with 'Units', 'normalized' and 'Position', [0 0 1 1].

I meant maximize the axes in the figure so no blank border around is left. Your answers worked great. Thanks for taking the time.
